Mexican Flag Quesadillas

For our dippers with the Black Bean Soup, I made quesadillas to keep with the tex-mex theme. I decided to use the colors of the Mexican flag to keep it cute and themey. I love queso fresco, so I decided on that as my white, I had some roasted red peppers on hand for the red, and chose avocado for the green since the meal was very low in fat (yes, avocado is a good fat, but it's still a fat!)

Mexican Flag Quesadillas

4 whole grain tortillas
4 oz. queso freso, crumbled
1 avocado, sliced
2 roasted red peppers, sliced

Heat a nonstock pan over medium heat.
Place 2 tortillas in, folded back to back.
Top with cheese, adovaco, peppers, and more cheese.
Flop the top half over, and press with another pan.
Flip after 3-4 minutes, and cook the second side for 2-3 minutes.
Slice and serve with black bean soup.

I hope I can get to the point where I can make more original recipes. These look so festive and delicious!

These would be great with just the avocado - that's obviously what won me over!
